Exceeded expectations! What an incredible story - I couldn't stop listening. The narrator was fantastic. Between his performance and the author's unbelievable detail and description, I felt like I was in Japan with the POWs. It made me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.
It's a shame the children of this country have become so entitled and weak. What the POWs went through during WWII is unspeakable. Young people today wouldn't last a week without their electronics and Fiji water...these POWs would be ashamed to see how this entitled country has changed.
Thank you to the brave men and women that have fought for our country so that we can be free and live a life of our choosing. I am grateful for their sacrifice and for their family's sacrifice.
God Bless America
The story had a nice flow to it, and managed not to get too slow coving the span of time.
Louie of course.
He really didn't do too many voice characterizations, but pretty much read the book. He did however, have very pleasing voice and diction to listen to. One of the best narrators I have listened to.
No. I have read and listened to a lot of war books, so I wasn't really shocked that much by the brutality. The events pretty much reenforced the things I have read in the past. Humans can be some cruel and also resilient beings.
Great book. The author obviously did some very in-depth and thorough research. Well done, and complimented by superior narration.
I have always heard of the World War II holocaust survival stories but never a pow survival story. It brought the pacific side of the WWII horror story into light. Best book I have heard in years.
